For those that are interested in the National Weather Service AWIPS system, you can now download your own home version in a java client format. This company is offereing a free month trial of the software and service. Thereafter, it is $29.95/mo. You can customize your model parameters and most of the capabilities of the National Weather Service. The software can be found at http://extremeforecasting.com/ under the program Metwise Net.

Enjoy,

Justin =)

I tried it out, it definately looks like AWIPS but it seemed a little clunky and took a while to update a loop, maybe that was my firewall.

One problem with AWIPS is that it was designed before the days that anyone envisioned zooming in and out of a map, so you are stuck jumping from US to Regional to Local predefined areas.

I still prefer the system that I developed :roll: with the help of wdtinc.com, which is called RadarPlus, and has also been accused of working like AWIPS. It also has street-level radar, lightning strikes, and PredictiveRadar. But this ExtremeForecasting product does have the forecast model data, and RadarPlus has only rad/sat/lightning/current conditions.

Hello. I like to issue my own warnings on my website when severe thunderstorms are in the area. I was wondering of any of you know of any type of software that is similar or like the NWS's WarnGen software...A simple click and "Drag Me to Storm". If you know of any type of software...could you let me know where to find it. It makes it alot easier than typing it out manually.

Thanks!

Jesse,

With Metwise Net, you can zoom in by clicking the middle mouse button and zoom out by clicking the left mouse button. You don't have to switch regions to view closer...

You can view radar, satellite, international obs, model data, soundings, profiler data. The newest version has auto-reload for the main pane. We are working to ingest mcidas satellite data in the future and possibly integrate level 2 radar data.

The software will take a short time to load because it is generating the graphics at each requests. Some graphics are pre-generated and require small amounts of time, but radar... especially the regional images are generated by assimilating data from each radar on request. We may try and pregenerate these in the future.
